Alla barn drömmer om att se jättedjur vandra på jorden igen. Kan och borde den drömmen bli verklighet? Hendrik Poinar ger ett lärorikt tal om nästa — riktigt — stora grej: uppdraget att skapa en varelse som är väldigt lik vår luddiga vän, den ullhåriga mammuten. Det första steget, att sekvensera ullisens genom, är nästan avklarat. Och det är enormt. (Inspelat på TEDxDeExtinction.)
